Meesalai Thiruneelakanda Vellai Mavady Pillayar temple is situated in close proximity to Jaffna-Kandy road in Meesalai and on the Meesalai-Allarai road. The temple had been there even before the Portuguese rule in Jaffna. But fearing that it will be demolished by Portuguese rulers, as it happened to other temples, devotees buried the Vinayagar idol in a nearby place. During the British rule, it came out during ploughing, and the temple was rebuilt and the same Vinayagar idol was enshrined in the sanctorum. You can see a cut mark on the idol that was created during ploughing. The annual festival of the temple is celebrated for 10 days in August.
